Four Directions by Clay Anderson
Mystery and beauty coexist in the works of central Pennsylvanian artist, Clay Anderson whose exhibition presents four richly different stylistic explorations of the artist's core themes. In his own words:
"When mystery refuses to fully reveal its secrets, the thinking mind temporarily gives up and, for a moment, is quiet. When Beauty is observed the heart expands and presents awareness with an exquisite energy. The combination of a quiet mind and an expanded heart offers the opportunity for an extremely rich human experience, one for which I look daily in my Art and in my Life."
Each piece blends seamlessly with the next to create a rich, thoughtful experience. Looking closely, elements of artistic influences are evidente in post-modern. amorphous brushstrokes, figures that are reminiscent of the ancient art of Central American cultures, and the Early Renaissance perspective of Raphael.
An alumnus of Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Anderson draws on the techniques and styles he developed on traveling scholarships in Europe. The winner of many awards and honors, Mr. Anderson's paintings and sculptures have been included in many publications as well as numerous public and private collections. These enspiring pieces will be on display throughout the month of March.
